Summary

This new edition of this popular textbook will help students understand the assessment and treatment of patients with respiratory disease.

Designed to increase clinical reasoning skills, each chapter begins with background information on each disease, then presents a detailed case study, followed by pertinent questions and answers. The book focuses on how to make an accurate assessment that leads to appropriate therapy.

Four new chapters:

*Introduction to Patient Assessment
*Tuberculosis
*Pneumonia in the Immunocompromised Patient (Including AIDS)
*Ethics in Respiratory Care

*Focuses on the commonly encountered adult, pediatric, and neonatal respiratory diseases.
*Each chapter includes the pathophysiology related to signs and symptoms, pertinent information to gather during assessment, and appropriate treatment for each disorder.
*Unique interactive approach in each chapter simulates reality by presenting a case study and guiding the reader through assessment and treatment; questions that the therapist should be asking are strategically placed throughout the case study and are followed by possible answers.
*Useful for preparing for the NBRC clinical simulation examinations.
*Many actual patient x-rays and other drawings and tables are included in text.
*Pedagogical features include key terms and abbreviations that appear in bold at first mention in the text and are defined in the glossary and in an appendix of normal lab values.
